Guess what just got sent (via text) from sunny Los Angeles?! My favorite yellow flowers! Spring will soon be more than a dream, folks.... I can feel it. Xo

Amber Boardman -- AOD

I was lucky enough to catch up with my beautifully talented friend Amber this week and I wanted you to get a chance to hear what she's up to lately. She recently curated a video exhibit: "Give Me a Minute," at the Shirey, and you can see a lot of these diverse 60 second pieces here. The show got a great review and response from all walks of the world (especially from the ADD crowd!), and I am so inspired by how she is melding genres of art, music & film all together. I thought I'd also throw in an interview on the artist just to ring home how aces she is.

Scott Eiden -- AOD

From the artist on this photograph, "Hank Williams, Georgiana, Alabama":
"I took this picture at the childhood home of Hank Williams, Sr. This was his boyhood bed, though the curtains were posthumously donated to the home (it's now a little museum/shrine). The curtains were handmade and show the lyrics and music to the song 'Your Cheatin' Heart.'  There's a really wonderful lady who tends to the home and the souvenirs and things. Also, once a year out back, they have a concert of people singing like Hank Sr."

Please note the bold line regarding the curtains. It's blowing my mind

Image Inspiration -- Yellow Greetings

This image makes me want to:

1. Go work for this incredibly outfitted company
2. Fly somewhere in a yellow plane immediately
3. Improve my overall attitude for the day and salute a stranger passing by

Reading List -- So Much Reading

Boy oh boy, reading all of these books 3 times each with Desmond made me realize how much I love reading, and how it can also be a great way to relax yourself right into a nap.
